Show car, transformer or Radical custom? In a world of pampered trailer queens, this over the top Lowrider gets driven. A LOT! Imagination, courage and a lot of cutting blades went into this creation.
On Saturday March 7th the day before the big show we were treated to an outdoor show sponsored by Classic Legends association and Old Memories CC Japan. Together they presented the Locos United show in the Aichi Tokoname Rinku bay area.

Situated along the shoreline of the Nagoya bay, it was a perfect location for an outdoor show. Music, BBQ, Hot soup, ( it was a little cold ) and great tacos!
And there were some cool cars too!
This first picture is Mr. Howard Gribble.
I had an opportunity to talk to Howard in Nagoya. He is such a great man and a wealth of knowledge. A car enthuisest and photographer, his collection of lowrider photography spans more then 5 decades and he often shares them with us. Thank you for your time and for attending the show.
My report on the Classic Legends Lowrider & Kustom show will be broken down into a few posts, there is just too much to share.
After a long flight into Japan's Narita Airport then another short flight to Nagoya We checked into our Hotel. A lot of other Americans had already arrived and we were all hanging out in the lobby when around 12am, these guys roll in. Even after a long 20+ hour drive, they came to our hotel to say hi and welcome us to Japan. Thank you!
